Nine 208B Aircraft Delivered, Contract Completed
Cessna said Wednesday it has completed the delivery of the 32nd
Model 208/208B Caravan aircraft to Força Aérea
Brasileira, the air branch of the Brazilian armed forces. This
delivery completes a contract for nine new Caravans.
"It´s really great for us to have one more Cessna 208B
Grand Caravan in our fleet. It is an amazing, multi-purpose
aircraft with low maintenance cost and our fleet has been extremely
useful to our Force," said Colonel Luzzi, Director of Lagoa Santa
Depot, the organization responsible for third-level maintenance of
Brazilian Air Force Caravan aircraft.
"Cessna is proud to have a highly regarded organization such as
the FAB operate the largest fleet of Caravans outside the United
States in the world and to put the model's versatility to use on
diverse missions, whether it's cargo and passenger transport or
utilitarian and special mission air operations," said Bob Gibbs,
Cessna's director of international sales. "Throughout its 25-year
history, the Caravan has proven its versatility, offering
impressive hauling capacity and reliable performance."
The first FAB Caravan started service in 1987. They are based
around the country and perform a variety of roles. The
single-engine turboprop Caravan is certified in 100 countries and
the fleet of 2,000-plus aircraft has amassed more than 13 million
flight hours. It received FAA type certification in 1984 and marked
its first customer delivery in 1985.
